British parliament member Jo Cox died Thursday after being shot and stabbed multiple times in a West Yorkshire town she represented. A man in his fifties attacked the Labor Party member in a street of Birstall, the town where she planned to hold a constituency meeting. Her death has temporarily halted campaigning for next week's referendum on whether Britain should stay in the European Union or leave it. VOA's Zlatica Hoke reports.
